bbscomd - OurNet BBS Remote Access Daemon
bbscomd [ -acdfgGhsx ] [ -b addr ] [ -p port ] [ -u key ] [ -l logfile ] [ -t timeout ] backend [ argument... ]
The bbscomd starts a OurNet::BBS::Server daemon listening on the specified port (default 7979). Remote users could then start using the OurNet backend or OurNet::BBS::Client to connect like this:
use OurNet::BBS; my $Remote_BBS = OurNet::BBS->new(OurNet => 'remote.org');
-f flag is specified, bbscomd will fork a new process to run as daemon. The
-d flag turns on debugging.
-u specifies the pgp keyid or userid used in authorization. If
-a is supplied, the server will serve in the authenticated mode with additional permission controls. Similarly,
-c disallows insecure cipher modes.
-g flag allows server to assume
guest as the user ID on a failed Authentication (fallback to AUTH_NONE), with corresponding permissions.
-G flag allows the client to authenticate as ANY user they wanted to; because of the security risk, this flag automatically specifies
-b localhost for you. Note that this does not assume the behaviour of
-g; you'll have to specify
-gG explicitly to turn on both settings.
-s flag permits single-connection only. This is primary used for single-user situations.
-x flag assumes default settings on Win32. It's not meant to be used on other platforms.
If you don't want to bind all available IPs, specify one using the
-t flag sets the
connection-timeout option to the Server object, which causes a child connection to terminate after an inactivity for timeout seconds.
If you want to keep a Net::Daemon styled log file, specify the file name to
Please refer to OurNet::BBS modules for more information on usage.
Starting a typical MELIX daemon, require authentication, but allowing unprivileged guest access:
% bbscomd -acfg -u melix MELIX /home/melix 2997 350
Starting a localhost-only bridge at port 8080 to another OurNet node, with debugging output:
% bbscomd -d -b 127.0.0.1 -p 8080 OurNet localhost
